Whether it's for a birthday or just for the fun of it, why not provide your guests with an art activity that's fun and inspiring? Host a Book-Making Party! Whether it be for a one-off visit or a series of visits, I can bring the magic of books arts made simple to your location. (Not just for birthdays - and certainly, not just for kids! Adults love making books, too - why not host a book party for your friends?)
I'll spend an hour (or more) with groups of up to 10 guests, ages 6 and up, to guide and inspire them in creating a fun and fabulous book project to take home. I bring all art materials; you need only provide table space. (If you're booking me for a birthday party, I'll make a special birthday sign-in book for your child, and bring glittery gel pens so friends and family can sign it!)
What can we make in an hour? Possibilities include:
Longer periods of time = more complex book structures, OR multiple book projects, OR one simple book plus time to start writing and illustrating! My background in illustration/graphic communications enables me to offer students excellent guidance on story planning and page layout, which can be woven into the overall lesson plan if you so desire.

I can also
do in-home instruction for a variety of different art techniques, including
drawing classes - feel free to reach out if that's of interest.
